Benefits of walnuts
Although the benefits of coconut, which is more and more popular with each passing day and are frequently researched, do not fall off the agenda, in fact, the walnut, which grows in abundance in our country, has so many benefits that it does not look like the benefits of coconut.
Walnuts contain healthy fats, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Walnuts have higher antioxidant activity than other common nuts. Compounds called vitamin E, melatonin and polyphenol provide antioxidant properties in the membrane surrounding the walnut.
A study conducted on a limited number of healthy individuals showed that consuming walnuts during a meal prevented the oxidative damage of LDL, which is called bad cholesterol, after a meal. Bad cholesterol, called oxidized LDL, tends to build up in the arteries and cause atherosclerosis.
Walnuts are also significantly higher in omega-3 fats than other nuts, providing 2.5 grams of omega-3s per 1 serving (about 28 grams). Omega-3 fats from plants, including walnuts, are called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). This is an oil that the body cannot produce itself and must be taken from the outside. The recommended daily amount of ALA; 1.6 g for men; for women it is 1.1 grams. With a single serving of walnuts, the daily required amount can be met. Observational studies have shown that every gram of ALA consumed per day reduces the risk of dying from heart disease by 10%.
Another feature of walnuts is that it reduces inflammation. Walnut fights against oxidative stress and inflammation with the polyphenols it contains. The ALA omega-3 fat, magnesium, and the amino acid arginine in walnuts may also reduce inflammation. Considering that inflammation markers play a role in the mechanisms of Alzheimer’s, diabetes and many other chronic diseases, the preventive effect of walnuts on these diseases can be understood.
Benefits of walnuts for intestinal health
Walnuts are also very useful for intestinal health. In a study of 194 healthy adults, eating 43 grams of walnuts each day for eight weeks showed an increase in beneficial bacteria compared to eating no walnuts.
Benefits of walnuts in cancer prevention
Non-clinical cell culture or animal experiments and human observational studies suggest that eating walnuts may reduce the risk of developing certain cancers, including breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers.
Walnuts are rich in the polyphenol ellagitannins. Some beneficial bacteria in the gut can convert these substances into compounds called urolithins. Urolithins may have anti-inflammatory properties, which may be one way it helps protect against colorectal cancer in your intestines. The anti-inflammatory effects of urolithines may also help protect against other cancers. Besides these properties, urolithins have hormone-like properties that enable them to block hormone receptors in your body. This, in turn, may help reduce the risk of hormone-related cancers, particularly breast and prostate cancers. Although an inverse link between walnut consumption and cancer risk has been demonstrated, more clinical studies should be conducted to confirm these effects.
Benefits of walnuts for weight loss
While walnuts are high in calories, studies reveal that walnuts may be helpful in controlling appetite.
In a controlled study, 10 obese individuals were recruited. Subjects in the study were given a smoothie, a type of beverage made with approximately 48 grams of walnuts, once daily for five days, or consumed a placebo drink equal in calories and nutrients. In the walnut consuming group, appetite and hunger decreased compared to the other beverage. Additionally, after five days of consuming the walnut smoothie, brain imaging of the participants showed increased activation in a particular region, which helped them resist highly tempting food cues like cake and chips.
